Hey, maybe Chow Yun-Fat WILL be in another good film before time ends.
Not sure it'll be this one, but I sort of started the trailer expecting a drama (which may show how little I know about Confucius) and got war epic instead.


  1. Well, according to Wikipedia, Confucius was born to a warrior family and lived in a time of "division, chaos, and endless wars between feudal states."

    Which is to say, just about any historical Chinese movie.

    If nothing else, it should be pretty, if it follows the pattern of other period pieces from the past few years.

  2. I've read a lot of Confucious stories where he starts off or ends up surrounded by an army or two. Then he tells people to chill out, then the stories over. So lets hope that's not the prototypical story they're spinning out here.

    Oooh! Maybe it'll be yet another apologia for the cultural revolution!
